Deep Pile Moroccan Rugs in March's Elle Decor

Deep Pile Moroccan Rugs in March's Elle Decor

The March issue of Elle Decor screams What's Hot Now in neon ink across the cover — and though the editors never officially put deep pile Moroccan Rugs on "the list", 4 of the 6 featured homes have deep pile Moroccan rugs with a very similar graphic pattern. And a fifth home features a similar Turkish Wool Prayer rug! Are neutral Moroccan rugs the new suzani of shelter magazines?

They coordinate with nearly everything — the examples below are in both modern and traditional settings:

1 Yancey Richardson's Chelsea apartment has more than one of these rugs — this story is not online. (pages 140, 143)
2 Hollywood director Brett Ratner's master bedroom has a Moroccan rug credited to Mansour Modern. (pages 96-97 )
3 Artist Anne Becker has one in the bedroom...
4 ...and a pink version in the hall! (pages cover, 131,133)
5 Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham's wife has one in her studio. (page 118)

We recently got a sneak peek at the summer line from West Elm and they've got a similarly patterned rug — Alhambra Rug available in 5 sizes ($109 - $749).
